It’s strange to think that some people don’t get excited about traveling. You may love the thought of going away, but you hate to think about the actual act of traveling. Why? Because you suffer from motion sickness. This means that you feel nauseous whenever you’re in a car, plane, or boat. As such, it makes your travels very eventful and terribly complicated. Nothing kills the mood quite like the constant feeling of nausea!
If this sounds like a problem you suffer from, then don’t fret. These days, there are plenty of ways you can deal with motion sickness and bring more joy to your travels.
Drink ginger tea
Try and bring some ginger tea with you during your travels. This is easy if you’re driving somewhere with your family, and you can still try and get some ginger tea onto a plane as well. The reason behind this is that ginger is proven to help with nausea. It can settle your stomach and make you feel way more at ease. In fact, lots of women recommend ginger tea to deal with morning sickness. You get other health benefits from ginger as well, which is a nice bonus!
Try a CBD supplement
CBD is all the rage in the health industry these days. Contrary to what you might believe, it’s not actually a drug. It’s just an extract from a plant, and there are numerous studies that reveal it could have positive health benefits. Naturally, most people wonder; what does CBD feel like? The common misconception is that it gets you high. This is only the case if you take a CBD supplement that includes THC. Otherwise, the feeling is no different from if you took any other supplement. CBD is shown to help ease nausea, which is why it’s great in this situation. You can take a little drop or two on your tongue before you travel, and it might help settle your stomach and prevent the feeling of sickness.
Get some over-the-counter medication
If all else fails, then you may need some medication to help you out. I think it’s worth trying out the other two options beforehand just so you can avoid prescription drugs as much as possible. But, if you’re still struggling, then there are a few items at your disposal. You could get medication that targets nausea and motion sickness directly, or you could opt for one that helps you relax and fall asleep. With the second option, you can sleep through your journey and avoid the feelings of motion sickness! Clearly, with something like this, you need to see a doctor beforehand. Speak to your family physician and ask about the different medication options available for your problem.
As someone who sporadically suffers from travel/motion sickness, I know how horrible it feels. Especially when you’re supposed to be excited about where you’re going. These three ideas will provide you with some instant relief for your issue. Now, you can sit back, relax, and enjoy the journey to wherever the travel bug decides to take you!
